I'm non-EU (but with EU spouse) with job offer in ZH. What are my options?

Hi all,

In a tricky spot and could use your expert help

I'm non-EU (Canadian) with an EU spouse and have just received a job offer in Zurich. Due to COVID, getting a non-EU B permit is suspended indefinitely so my new employer suggests that I get a B permit as an EU spouse (family reunification) as I move to Zurich with my wife.

Unfortunately, getting an EU family reunification B permit that allows me to work requires my wife to have a job as well. Otherwise, we would both get B permits that don't allow us to work.

Of course, my offer is conditional on me having a permit before I start working in October/November so my wife now needs to find a job in that timeframe.

Do I have any other options? Seems a bit risky to rely on my wife getting a job in time given the economic circumstances at the moment. At the same time, things could open up again for non-EU people in time.

We're moving from an EU country if that's relevant.

Thank you!
